Rocking chair and a patchwork quilt birthday card.

I just love these two stamp sets
Our Daily Bread Designs
The sets I have used are
Sew Special (rocking chair)
Sewn with Love sentiment
I used a 3D Punch and Emboss flower design
topped each with a colourful button.
A Fiskars border punch at top of card.
A white seam binding tape double bow
pretty brown and white checked brad.
I coloured the rocking chair with my trusty Aquarella pencils
and then
painted with my water brush.
I had a lot of fun making this card for my friend's birthday.
I never know quite how they are going to turn out, these cards seem to tell me what to do half the time....tweaking until it's just right.
Such fun.

I love her opening photo, that's what initially got me interested.

    The cards are beautifully done. You have created a "gift card" I love the 3D affect and the wording on the cards are lovely. I love that you have made the cards and that who ever receive them will be delighted and will feel very loved by you!
